China Glaze Anchors Away Spring 2011 Swatches & Review – Part II
No time for dilly dallying today, so here is part II of China Glaze Anchors Away for spring 2011.
These had better color payoff than the first 6 I showed. Most were opaque in two coats, as opposed to part I which were mostly three. All the cremes were really shiny as well.
Starboard is a medium shamrock green creme. This wound up being nicer on me than I expected. It looks fabulous with my skin tone and it applied like butter. This was two coats.
Lighthouse is a warm yellow/gold with glitter. This is a “no can do” color on my skin tone, it just makes me look sickly and sallow. Otherwise it’s a pretty color. This was three coats.
Ahoy! is a bright pink with fuchsia shimmer. This is the star of the whole collection. It’s bright, fun, opaque and looks great on me. This was two coats.
First Mate is a medium/dark navy blue creme. Nice and looks good on me, but been there, done that. This was two coats.
Life Preserver is a medium coral/orange creme. Thought it was going to be more muddy or brown from the bottle but turned out to be brighter. This was two coats.
Hey Sailor is a bright poppy red creme. Gorgeous application and looks amazing and shiny, but it’s probably not all that unique compared to the 5 million red cremes I already own. This was two coats.
This collection overall was just ok to me compared to most China Glaze collections which are “WOW” in my eyes. It seems like the colors were mostly just kinda of “there”, nothing super exciting going on and many have been seen before. Hopefully the next one will be amazing!
What do you think of this set?
